Adelaide’s Brad Crouch has suffered yet another hamstring injury, however, the midfielder is expected to be fit in time to take part in the JLT Community Series.

Crouch re-injured his troublesome hamstring shortly after the club returned from Christmas break and has since been restricted to light drills at training.

The 23-year-old missed three games due to the injury last year and also suffered hamstring problems in his debut season in 2013.

He also missed the entire 2015 season due to a persistent foot injury.

Luckily for the onballer though, his latest setback appears to only be a minor one.

“He’s fine, I think he had a little setback a couple of weeks ago now,” Adelaide defender Daniel Talia said.

“Brad’s been tearing up the track and he’s still getting to know his body, and probably with his history they’re a bit more careful with him.

“Within the next week he’ll be back into full training and doing everything.

“The JLT (Community Series) starts in about a month, so he will be ready to go.”

The Crows’ first game of the pre-season competition is against Richmond at Etihad Stadium on Friday, February 24.
